Striped Summer Bag
Summery shades with a tone-on- tone dye effect. The same drape and fabulous fiber combination as self-striping Bella Lino, Fortuna is a great yarn to crochet!
Linen is a strong fiber and makes a wonderful summer bag. Perfect for toting groceries or for a trip to the beach. Knit in the round from the bottom up, you can easily customize the size of your bag to suit your needs.
